“I am receiving excellent care from Nicola Folino in Oakville, Ontario. She received her McGill Method Certification and is carrying out the practical task of seeing back-pained individuals on a long term basis. There is a real need for this! It took me a long time to find someone to help me with Dr. McGill’s exercises. Many physiotherapists, chiropractors and trainers are enthusiastic about the big three but don’t know much more than I do about them. At least I’ve read Back Mechanic! But us back-pain sufferers need on-going instruction, not just a one-time three hour session. I understand the providers are meant to assess desperate patients, but there is a big need for people like Nicola who is carefully trained in the McGill exercises and background science and who see a patient sees several times to ensure their program is done correctly, etc.
Thank goodness I found Nicola. Her passion for spine health, her excellent ability to convey information to her client, her deep knowledge of back mechanics and how the big three exercises should be done, and her highly informed ability to modify movements to suit individual needs, make Nicola an outstanding practitioner. It is unfortunate that there aren’t more people trained like Nichola. That being said, I can’t imagine anyone being as excellent, as informed and as passionate a trainer as Nicola so I’m glad I have found her.”
